In a world where teenagers in West Africa and Eastern Europe can share videos and mp3s on Youtube, a Sri Lankan urbanite is transformed by hip-hop and an American DJ re-mixes sounds out of a Brazilian favela, it is undeniable that the completely interconnected global village has arrived...

Swaziland’s highly acclaimed three-day music and arts festival is proud to announce Les Nubians as the first headline act for MTN Bushfire 2015 from 29 to 31 May 2015. MTN Bushfire, known for its eclectic and diverse music line-up is very excited to be able to host Les Nubians, thee Paris based Grammy Nominated artists that have become synonymous with a unique Afro/European neo-soul sound and style.

As one of the world’s most successful French language groups, Les Nubians’ newest album, Nu Revolution, perfectly sums up their pan-African approach and ethos. According to the band, “Africa is our past, present and future... This [album] is about accepting and rejoicing through our body and mind that Africa is vibrant and 10 000 000 times alive! Africa for the future also to say that we have to prepare the future of the continent. It’s in the now that we create the future. Action time is now!”
